We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Ireland. The British Embassy in Dublin provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Ireland.

Our work covers a range of issues including the economic and trade aspects of the bilateral relations between UK and Ireland, advising the British government on Irish policy, and improving Anglo-Irish work in areas such as foreign policy, the EU, science and innovation, energy, sustainable development, climate change, illegal immigration and counter-terrorism.

You can access UK government services while in Ireland.
